Thanks Pete

The 3rd Party App seems to popup a window whenever a number is hovered over

For example, if the app is running a I open notepad and type a number in there
when I hover over this number the popup appears

Same in word, Excel or anything else

When I open VFP and simply type a number into the command window it works here too

The only time it doesn't work is if I create a VFP form and display a field
or display in a grid

If I put a browse behind a button, and show the browse window it works

I have put a little app together and sent it to the developers of the 3rd Party app
According to them it should work so they are going to look into it

I will let you know

Thanks for replying

Phillip
